Reviewed 14 June 2011

One of the best places I've stayed at in this price range. Great value for money. Located right at the beach. And the owner really made an effort to make me feel at home - which is not something I can say about most other B&Bs I've stayed at as a solo traveller.

This place is not a top notch luxury resort or a boutique hotel, like some other neighbouring hotels on Morro de São Paulo, for us it was exactly right.

It is a small, budget pousada with only 5 or 6 rooms (2 with ocean view), situated on the quiet 3rd beach which is, in our opinion, the best location. The house is between the 2nd beach and all its action (bars, restaurants) and the 4th and 5th beach which are great for swimming and relaxing and much less crowded.

The rooms are simple, very clean and with A/C (we were missing a fan however). The breakfast is at the pousada next door and absolutely amazing. The best breakfast we have had in Brazil so far!

The owner, Federico, just took over the pousada and has been running it since October 2010. He is very relaxed and friendly and makes an honest effort for you to have a good stay without being pushy or overly involved.

We have booked 3 double rooms. But when we arrived in the third beach we found a bad surprise!
The Pousada there was not, in the some place there was a market. This Pousada is close.
I think it will be better if the website (tripadvisor) check the pousadas/hotels before.
A terrible experience.

Dear James, I'm sorry for what happened. The Pousada is rightabove the market, I started managing it on Oct 1st and after a quick refurbishing we opened on oct 10. We had no evidence of your reservation with the previous management. You are my guest for a week end in a time of your convenience.

We stayed in morro de sao paulo in november 2009 with a package with hotel studio do carmo in Salvador- 7 nights.
The value of this package is good because is ALL INCLUSIVE!
The room was with a balcony in front of the sea and to stay in a place like morro de sao paulo, it is perfect!
We loved morro de sao paulo!

We stayed at this pousada for four nights and had a wonderful time. The receptionist is friendly and very helpful, although she speaks very little English. It seems that she was also responsible for cleaning the rooms and putting out the breakfast, and sweeping sand away. She would leave by around 6pm though, so you needed to make sure you had any questions answered by then. Our daughter , who was along with us, speaks some Portuguese, so we had very few problems communicating.
The third beach is a great location to stay as it's within walking distance of everything you need. The fourth beach would be ok if you want a lot more privacy. The fifth beach is for those who want to feel isolated and dont mind taking a horse and cart to town, which is about $R50 round-trip, less if you're a good negotiator.
The breafast was very good and included juices, fruit, cakes, rolls and some typical Brazilian foods.
Our room was very small for three people, with barely enough room to move around, but it was clean and functional. This was the same for the bathroom. Overall, I think this may be a very typical pousada in this area and we were very satisfied with our stay here.
We met a local guide by the name of Joy who we highly recommend using if staying on the island or even if coming just for the day. joy.msp@hotmail.com He speaks English! This was very helpful and we took a few different excursions with him where we learned so much about the island's culture. Highly recommended is his walking tour.
We would not hesitate to stay here again!
